First volume in the new series LAP <Landscape and Architecture Projections>- an innovative series on architecture, urbanism, and landscape
Against the backdrop of climate change and intensifying human occupation, explorative design strategies can play a role in recalibrating the relation between landscape logics and urbanization patterns in the Andes.
Urban Andes marks the start of the new series LAP on innovative design research in architecture, urbanism, and landscape. It is the result of a two-year collaboration (2018-2020), initiated by the CCA in cooperation with KU Leuven and various partners, including local organizations and the VLIR-UOS. A co-production of students, researchers and designers, this book suggests alternative futures in the light of climate change in the Andes, crossing scales of landscape systems to new settlement typologies within the Cachi River basin of Ayacucho, Peru.
